For the second post in my celebrity Saturday series, I chose to recreate Megan Fox’s makeup. I thing she is SO gorgeous and I always LOVE her makeup, however, it changes depending on what event she is attending. I chose to do the look I see her wearing most often which is a gold smokey look. I did not add false lashes because lashes are not the focal point of her look. But if you’d like to add some more drama… GO FOR IT! All colors besides one glitter shadow used in this look are from the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette.

Let’s get started!
Let’s start with brows. Megan’s eyebrows are about the same thickness throughout her brow with a lifted arch. I have pretty thick brows, but I enhanced them with my Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow in #15.
With a MAC 266 brush, I ran this through my brow and rounded it at the arch to create the lifted effect Megan has.
Next, I primed my lids with NARS smudgeproof eyeshadow base, just a clear base.
Now I’m taking my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in MILK and applying this under my brow and in my inner corner and blending it out with my finger.
Now I’m going to take my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Cashmere (gold) and blend this all over my lid.
Now from the Too Faced Palette, I’m going to take the light cream matte color called Heaven on my Tigi angled brush and apply this underneath my brow and in my inner corner.
Now for some added light in my inner corner, I’m taking my Napoleon loose eye dust in Ice Storm, a creamy white glitter, and apply that around my tearduct.
Now for the gold. I’m taking the Honey Pot (gold) from the Too Faced palette on my MAC 239 flat shader brush, and patting that all over my lid stopping about 1/4 of the way from the edge.
Now for the smokey outer corner. On a MAC 217 blending brush, I’m going to take Erotica, a deep grey toned taupe shimmery shade, and buff this in my outer corner and first half of my crease.
Now I’m going to take Velvet Revolver, a matte color that matches my dark blonde hair, on a fluffy blending brush and buff this above my crease.
Now to intensify the “smokiness”, I’m going to add “Sexpresso”, a dark neutral toned brown, into the very outer corner and crease with a MAC 217 brush.
Now for the smokey liner. I’m going to take Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Brown and an Elf concealer brush and smudge that onto my lower lash line.
For my upper lashline, I want to really smoke out my liner, not as much up, but out to create Megan’s wide-eyed look.
I’m taking my Elf cream liner in Black and my Mac 266 brush and creating a SOFT wing. I’m not dragging it out as far as I normally would, as you can see, I’m stopping shortly before my crease.
To smoke that out, just take a flat definer brush and a dark brown or black shadow and just move the brush over the liner on the outer half of your eye. No need to be too picky or precise with your line. That, my friends, it the beauty of a smokey eye.
Now just add your favorite mascara. I chose to use the Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes, a new one i’m testing. I like the way it flares my lashes at the outer edge.
That’s it for the eyes!
For the face, instead of heavy contouring, Megan always looks sun kissed. Not TAN, but just healthy.
For this, I used my Chanel Soliel Tan De Chanel, their cream bronzer, and applied this in the normal 3 E motion. Super simple.
For blush, Megan uses a natural peachy-pink shade. I chose Benefit Hervana Blush.
For lips, add your favorite peachy pink lipstick and you’re done!
